Sunday's National Pizza Day gives upcoming Pi Day some competition
As we run up to National Pizza Day on Sunday, it's beginning to appear that this quasi-holiday is starting to give one of the longtime traditional calendar designations for pizza lovers — Pi Day on March 14 — a run for the money. Perhaps this earlier February celebration of the saucy crust appeals more to the less mathematically inclined, but regardless, many, many brands are offering special deals and menu items to celebrate. Here's just a small slice of what some brands are doing:
Chuck E. Cheese: $16.99 for a medium one-topper with two beverages or $32.99 for two large single-topping pies with four drinks.
Cicis: $15 for three medium single-topping pies.
Domino's: $7.99 for a large three-topping carryout pie.
Hungry Howie's: $5.99 for a large single-topper to carry out.
La Barra & Labriola in Chicago: These restaurants are featuring what owner, Rich Labriola, said is his first National Pizza Day white sauce deep-dish pie at the Riverside Oak Brook and North Michigan Avenue locations with bechamel chicken, caramelized onion and bacon in a classic Chicago-style deep dish crust.
Papa John's: 25% off regularly priced menu items.
Pieology: The new protein-packed anti-crust chicken base pizza as a free upgrade Feb. 9-16 for Pie Life members, except in Hawaii and Guam.
Pizza Hut: $5 off online orders of more than $25.
